We are deeply disappointed to share some difficult news regarding the Garden Theater Block. Today, Judge James issued a decision in favor of the appellant, essentially bringing progress on TREK Development Group’s proposed development to a halt.
ACCA has spoken with TREK, and remains deeply committed to both their project as presented, and to TREK as the preferred developer. TREK has received calls of support from both the URA and the Mayor’s office, and when we spoke this morning, I assured Bill Gatti that he still had the unwavering support of Allegheny City Central. TREK’s legal team is evaluating their options, and we will notify you all when further action can be taken.
I thank you all for your continued patience and strong showing of support throughout this process. I also urge you to remain positive. Construction continues on the Masonic Building at full speed, and we all look forward to holding our first meeting in City of Asylum‘s newly renovated space this fall!
President, Allegheny City Central Association
